It’s been so depressing not being able to go out and have afternoon tea and not to mention being cooped up at home day after day. I have been ordering afternoon tea in for the last couple of months and it does make this time spent on lock down so much more bearable.
So I ordered a box of 4 cupcakes from Plain Vanilla over the weekend. I’ve tried their cupcakes before at the Telok Ayer branch and was really impressed. There are 4 branches in Singapore at Tiong Bahru, Cluny Court, Ion Orchard and Telok Ayer. They have everyday bakes (cucpakes, cakes, cookies, brownie, tarts and pastries) and celebratory cupcakes where you can even custom write stuff on each cupcake like ‘I love you’ – how cute!
On deliveroo you can order a box of 4 for S$19.80 or a box of 6 for S$28.25 and I chose 4 – red velvet, vanilla bean, cookies & cream and milk choc chip. They have other yummy flavours like salted caramel, carrot, strawberry white chocolate, earl grey lavander, chocolate hazelnut, dark chocolate ganache, milk chocolate banana and cinnamon brown sugar. Literally every delicious flavour you can dream of. They also do specials which vary which is such a good idea!
What I love about Plain Vanilla cupcakes is that they are so soft and moist and literally melt in your mouth. They are also full of flavour and the forsting on top is incredible. They are my favourite cupcakes in Singapore and my favourite flavour is milk chocolate chip! I love milk chocolate and the bits of milk chocolate chips in the cupcake is DIVINE. My least favourite flavour is vanilla – it was good but didnt taste much like vanilla bean and had a smokey aftertaste which was weird.
I would definitely order the cupcakes again! (is next week too soon??) And they make the perfect gift if you want to send some edibles over to a loved one during this crazy time. Definitely try it out! X
